Delicious Gumdrop Cake
Submitted by Jocelyn Oraniuk, Stratford
It's very unusual to find something that your whole family likes
to eat. This cake is one of those things. It's um, um, good!
1/2 lb. butter
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
11/2 cups white sugar
21/4 cups flour
11/2 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups gum drops
Put 1/4 cup of the flour over the gum drops coating well. Beat
the butter and the sugar, add eggs one at a time and beat well
after each addition. Beat in the cream cheese and the vanilla.
Add flour, baking powder and gumdrops. Mix well. Put in a well greased
tube pan and bake at 325 F 70 to 80 minutes. Note: I use the
sugared gum drops not the baking ones. The cream cheese in the
recipe makes the cake very moist.
